Standard 'Copper-Like' Turntable Headshell
Polished "antiqued copper-like" finish for arguably our most beautiful headshell yet. This is a house brand high quality aluminum headshell that is an excellent upgrade over the popular silver painted headshell we sell. Generally it will fit any turntable with a 'S' (SME/JEI type)shaped tonearm. It requires an empty socket at the front end of the tonearm.
The socket must be .300 inches in diameter, have a notch in the top for the headshell alignment pin and have four contacts in the socket in a square pattern as well as a rotating locking collar on the tonearm to hold this headshell in place.
If you have a single set screw on the tonearm that holds a headshell in place, then this is not the headshell for you.
This headshell is all metal construction. Made in China. Has a "gold plated" plug and rear pins for excellent electrical contact with your tonearm socket pins. The total weight including the wireset leads is 9.4 grams.
Includes "gold plated" color coded copper wiring for positive cartridge connection with '0' ohm resistance.

Installation: Highly recommend using a pair of 'needle nosed pliers' to grab only the flat/crimped part of the connector at each end of the wire jumper and slip it on your headshell in the same pattern found on this headshell. Then do the same when slipping the connectors onto the back of your cartridge.
